Coriolanus Sonnet


We love this Sonnet that our Coriolanus Competition winner, Alyssa Boorman wrote for us:

A Sonnet for Riverside 

O how I faint to of this bounty think!
–That lo! Perhaps this glory may be mine,
And yet – be not it so, my heart shall sink,
And weep shalt I, such wretch-ed tears of brine.

O Ever have I loved the wond’rous Bard,
And how his words do my own heart beguile,
The player, Tom, I equally regard,
Betwixt them both have I much cause to smile.

I do so long for thy most sweetest prize,
To know just how such splend’rous craft was formed,
To thee I plea, leave not me to surmise,
Or with despair must my poor heart be swarmed.

To you I do thus make this humble plea,
O won’t you PLEASE bestow this prize to me?

Don’t miss our final screenings of CORIOLANUS – 1 & 8 March.
